NAME

       sefcontext_compile - compile file context regular expression files

SYNOPSIS

       sefcontext_compile [-o outputfile] [-p policyfile] inputfile

DESCRIPTION

       sefcontext_compile  is  used  to  compile  file  context  regular expressions into pcre(3)
       format.

       The compiled file is used by libselinux file labeling functions.

       By default sefcontext_compile writes the compiled pcre file with the .bin suffix  appended
       (e.g. inputfile.bin).

OPTIONS

       -o     Specify  an  outputfile that must be a fully qualified file name as the .bin suffix
              is not automatically added.

       -p     Specify a binary policyfile that will be used to validate the  context  entries  in
              the inputfile
              If  an  invalid context is found the pcre formatted file will not be written and an
              error will be returned.

RETURN VALUE

       On error -1 is returned.  On success 0 is returned.

EXAMPLES

       Example 1:
       sefcontext_compile /etc/selinux/targeted/contexts/files/file_contexts

       Results in the following file being generated:
              /etc/selinux/targeted/contexts/files/file_contexts.bin

       Example 2:
       sefcontext_compile -o new_fc.bin /etc/selinux/targeted/contexts/files/file_contexts

       Results in the following file being generated in the cwd:
              new_fc.bin
